The pepper spray feature is phenomenally easy to use; the instructional videos on the websites are a nice touch. Would love this one a little more if it bulked up some.

  • Not the sturdiest case

The Knucklecase is a hot and trendy item carried by starlets for a reason: It's nicely constructed and performs its sole duty--being an effortless handle for your phone--excellently. It will set you back a pretty penny though.

Price when rated: $49 - $125

Pros

  • Acts as a handle to your iPhone, which is super handy
  • Easy to put phone in and take out

Cons

  • Not really intended to be used as a weapon
  • No lip or edge means your phone sits flat on surfaces
